LS Productions, the UK’s largest full-service production company, has opened a new hub to serve the North of England in Manchester.

The new office in Salford will provide a mid-way base for stills and motion shoots in the North to complement the company’s offerings in both Edinburgh and London.

It will be headed up by senior producer Abi Atkinson (right), who has 13 years’ experience in the industry and a strong knowledge of Manchester.

LS will be the only stills and motion service production company in the North to offer location scouting and management as well as service production.

“We’re very excited to be putting down roots in this area of the UK,” said founder and CEO Marie Owen.

“This new base will help support all of the exceptional facilities we have established in Scotland and make them more accessible for existing and potential clients who want to take advantage of locations outside of London. “Manchester will just be a new place to engage with our unrivalled and untapped resources.

“Abi has an outstanding knowledge of production in the UK and we know she will bring the same care and passion to every job that goes through Manchester that we bring to the work we do in Scotland,” adds Marie. “Whilst we may be in different offices day to day, we’re going to be working very closely together and we’re all thrilled to have Abi on board.”

Atkinson added:  “Manchester has always been a key media hub, particularly for broadcast which means there are endless resources available for film-makers and photographers here. It’s also extremely well connected to most of the surrounding northern cities – and packed full of the most amazing places.

“I’m really excited to be joining the team at LS Productions and am looking forward to showing what the north can actually offer besides the obvious stereotypes – there is nothing better than a northern cuppa though!”
